. >> le met play what clintoned. i'll tell you another concern a lot for some dengs behind the scenes that there's a nation a enthusiasm gap or it disappeared at this point. let me play it. >> i hear all these people say i was so enthusiastic four years ago. i so much hoped for a change. i'm disappointed in this, that, and the other thing. i may be the only person in america, but i am far more enthusiastic about president obama this time than i was four years ago. >> so there you have it, at least in some part former president bill clinton acknowledging this enthusiasm story line that's an undercurrent. you can't deny it. >> i'm so proud to have worked for bill clinton. can i say that on the air? >> are you angling for awe new job? >> he's not running for anything. i remember working for him. he was the same way then as he is today. he's so optimistic, but so are americans. americans are by nature optimistic he people, and that's one of the reasons why this country is so special and has on so many inonovatorinnovators. we're by nature future oriented people. president clinton himself
cut back on government spending. that's what clinton was doing. and if we had had the size stimulus we needed and hasn't diverted 40% of it to tax cuts for business, today we would have a lot more teachers, which is future wealth for america, nurses and cops on the street. so this is very important, and we would be in much better shape, but for the republicans insistence on taking care of the politicrats. >> what about the scare techniques that mitt romney is using and the president calling him out on it and the recession talk? >> there is the recession talk, but actually i thought more outrageous was the idea that if the president gets reelected, we're going to be back to default and this idea of a government shutdown as if it is the president who thinks that defaulting on america's debt or shutting down the government is a good idea. those are the republican tactics. you know, i'm amazed how much and how apparently confident mitt romney can be in projecting republican positions on to this president and accusing him of being responsible for everything the republicans want to do. it is
clinton would be the chief obama surrogate in this final week. now writing a rebuttal apparently to the des moines register to their endorsement of mitt romney. >> we don't need to be on the plane with bill clinton to know what mode he's in. he's polishing that op-ed he's writing for the des moines register, clearly intended as a rebuttal to the paper's endorsement of mitt romney. bill clinton will be the way he was in 1996 when running for his own re-election trying to get as many campaign stops in as possible. with the president sidelined it's bigger than it was before. >> hillary clinton in bosnia today, on a trip to algeria yesterday, bosnia today, talking about how much she thinks about new york and sort of this wonderful irony all around. of course as the former senator from new york, she was pointing out her heart is there with the victims. >> the level of -- even the 2008 campaign, the idea at the end of the 2008 primary campaign you would say bill clinton is barack obama's most important surrogate and may get him over the line in some of these places you would be laughed
. it was restored and then upgraded to a cabinet level position under bill clinton, and then reorganized under homeland security to an ancillary position within the broader framework there. so the problem is when you have competing forms of disaster for our attention, one which is natural, another one which is so-called manmade, you have a kind of moral triage going on in the government and that's problematic. the democrats have got it right. you put fema on its own bottom, allow it to address federal emergencies, and then you deliver resources to states and to local governments from the central organization of the government. yes, you're right. i think julian epstein is absolutely right. the democrats have been inclined to help those who are in need, and this is a challenge to us and a choice for americans here. what kind of government do you want? one that stands behind you when you are in trouble, or the one that kicks you to the curb and pours salt in your already open wounds and tells you you're on your own? that's the kind of choice we're facing here. >> michael makes a really good point
trail, as we point out. the vice president is, paul ryan as well as bill clinton. new polls giving a slight edge to the president. the power panel will weigh in on this in just a second. >>> plus, you can't forget this dangling crane, we've show you the images, that still happenings perilously above new york city. still a very dangerous situation. we'll bring you up to speed on what's being done to get that down safely. if you have pictures from the storm, tweet them to us, include the hash tag msnbc pics. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than a witch in a broom factory. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. and i was told to call my next of kin. at 33 years old, i was having a heart attack. now i'm on a bayer aspirin regimen. [ male announcer ] be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen. i didn't know this could happ
for the small states. not really. we have had three small state presidents in history. bill clinton, franklin pierce. the big states always win for 32 of the 36 years as a slave holding virginian. it's also massachusetts, state two or three, depending on how you count. the next four years, a massachusetts guy. the biggest northern state and virginians, the biggest southern state. not big state/small state. we never actually have a breakdown in american history between big states and small states. the lineup is more geographic. it's coast against center. in fact, a conservative should know this. we have it more for reasons having to do with slavery. if you have a national popular vote, the south would have lost every time. it doesn't let the slave population vote. the three fifths clause. pennsylvania in 1800 has more free people than virginia, way more voters than virginia, way fewer electoral votes. it connects to "today." if you want people to participate, the electoral college dampens it. ohio gets the same number of votes. if you have direct election, you create incentives for governments
massive reengineering of health care around government-centered ideas during the clint. en clinton era. >> j.d., you received a lot of blowback from your colleagues, heritage, ca tchlto, across the board. i want to read a response, "what's surprising is the obvious superficiality of kleinke's arguments. he either doesn't understand obamacare and the conservative case against it, or has willfully distorted his descriptions of both to serve his case. what's your response? >> first of all, i want to state something about the culture of think tanks. contrary to what people think especially when they're confr t confronted with information from the other side, think tanks are not these monolithic party organ for one party or the other. they are think tanks. and they involve a lot of differences of opinion. they involve a lot of different approaches whether we're talking brookings or whatever. when you're confronted with information from the other side, you tend to accuse, well, that think tank is really just an echo chamber. >> this is your think tank, this is aei, people at aei. >> you men
in westchester in ohio tonight. then there's former president bill clinton for the fifth player in all of this if you will and look at his schedule today in florida. he goes to lake worth, then ft. myers, then st. petersburg, then tallahassee. he's got five events in total today in florida. and you know the way he talks. talk about a hoarse voice by the end of the day it will be interesting to see where his voice is by 8:00 tonight. in the frenetic final days both candidates are giving positive pitches and warnings as to what will happen if the other guy is voted in. and bolder last night the president argued for another four years. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you know me. you may not agree with every decision that i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace change. i always remind people that when we did the auto bail out only 10% of the country approved of it. >> and then the president argued romney is a candidate who can't be trusted. >> governor romney has been using all this formidible talent as a salesman to dress up. the very same positives that failed
to completely abolish student loans for college. no wonder bill clinton and the washington post both endorse john delaney for his deep understanding of job creation. he'll be "an unusually effective congressman." delaney: it's not about politics. it's about doing what's right to help the middle class. i'm john delaney, and i approve this message. >>> it's 6:15 right now. if you see snowplows around the stadium this morning don't panic. the district is holding a dry run to make sure crews are ready for winter weather. about 700 plow drivers will hit their regular routes while the rest of the snow team will make sure they're up to date on what needs to be done the next time it snows. >> a live look outside, you can see the washington monument off in the distance there. it's friday. so it's all good. yeah, we don't need any of that winter weather right now. >> i feel like we're going to get it soon. i don't know why. >> because you know what? because it felt wintery yesterday. >> maybe that's it and we had that crazy weather. >> and west virginia is getting inundated with it. >> it's close. >>
. >>> welcome back to "politicsnation." former president clinton has been one of the big stories in this campaign. tirelessly helping president obama in critical swing states. and then there's former president george w. bush. he's out doing something that makes the romney camp very nervous. is is he praising the president like governor chris christie has been doing? no, not that. what president bush is doing might even be worse for romney. he's jetting to the luxurious cayman islands today to give a message about investing money there. the lush palm trees, bright white sand, glorious sunshine and, of course, the secret bank accounts. >> we are home of the finer things life has to offer and global financial services. we are the cayman islands. tap into the wealth of investment opportunities available in the cayman islands. >> in other words, it's a perfect place to hide your money. something the governor knows all about. romney's invested as much as $8 million in funds on the island with another multimillion dollar base there. and his old company bain has set up nearly 140 secret
clinton at an obama rally. governor, thanks so much for your time tonight. >> reverend, it's great to be with you, reverend al. thank you. >> now, let me ask you directly. wouldn't extending voting hours be the right thing for governor scott to do here? you did it in 2008 as the governor of florida and you are republican. what would be wrong with scott doing that today? >> there would be nothing wrong with it, reverend. it would be the right thing to do. it's a precious, cherished right and all of us want to have an opportunity to exercise. yesterday i was in miami guard dense in north dade county and the wait was 2 1/2 to three hours. it's unconscienceable to let that go on. the people of florida deserve better and they deserve a right to vote. >> i have been down in florida with the nonpartisan voting and i saw the lines last weekend in miami-dade and broward, all over the state. some waiting as much as three and four hours. we would want people to vote. what exactly is behind this idea of stopping people from voting or not extending the hours, particularly when you set the prece
